Description

Bodegas Toro Albalá Marques de Poley Oloroso

Bodegas Toro Albalá Marques de Poley Oloroso is dry and nutty with a noticeable salinity on the long finish. The nose opens with walnuts and almonds dipped in caramel before evolving to notes of raisins and dark chocolate. The intense and persistent palate tastes like Christmas fruit cake, closing in a dry and cinnamon spicy finish.

100% Pedro Ximénez. Bodegas Toro Albalá creates wines with 30% of grapes from their own vineyards and 70% coming from partner growers in Montilla-Moriles.

The fruit is made into Oloroso sherry and ages over 10 years in a solera system, a method that adds fresh wine to old wine and builds complexity in flavour and aroma.
